The paper introduces the concept of a firm's normal employment level as a weighted average of past employment levels and it analyzes the impact of an incentive scheme in which a firm receives a reward (or pays a penalty) when it deviates above (below) its normal employment level. The result is that such an institutional setting may imply a cyclical demand in labour. Thus, institutional arrangements may .be responsible for business cycles.
